Gnome terminal won't load (amd64, nvidia driver, xinerama)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

When running the nvidia proprietry drivers on my amd64 installation of ubuntu edgy, with xinerama enabled over 3 monitors (2 cards) gnome-terminal won't run.

I understand this may be to do with the nvidia driver but there is an x error so I'd like to look into it as far as possible and if it leads there i'll contact them directly.

Disabling xinerama fixes the problem, running the open source drivers seems to but I haven't managed to get the system set up right with them anyway so that point is kind of moot.

Anyway, I've been trying to generate a stack trace but I seem to be missing lots of symbols. Can anyone suggest what to do to get some more information here?
